Well...how about a model of Dawlish after the great storm of Feb 2014 with the rails dangling in the air ?

Would make a great diorama for anyone just interested in the scenic side!

Dawlish has one of the classic  sea  walls

it does indeed, but, that's for someone else to model :)

I'm thinking of changing the reverse loop so that the flat crossing occurs at the right hand exit with just a simple point on it's own in the cutting / tunnel to minimise the possible issues within an area that's hard to see / get to.

Wondered what people's thoughts were?

the track plan hasn't changed, just posted for reference.

Hopefully over the next weekend or two get some way towards starting the raised track-bed, restricted on maximum height by the roofline, restricted on minimum height by point motors!

Just aquired another locomotive project to join the two Duchesses and the ex L&Y pug in the loco works

If that's what I think it is the nose looks a bit short :hmmm:
Out of interest, what chassis are you going to use please?

it's not arrived yet, the nose on the prototype is very short anyway, much shorter than a Deltic or a 37

I'm probably going to use a 37 chassis with the bogie sides as that appears to be what's recommended in the e-bay listing and should be able to get one DCC ready, the other suggestion is, I think, a class 40 which I presume requires modification of the bogies as it's a 1+Co-Co+1

Yeah - the class 37, being a Co-Co, would probably be easier/the better bet :hmmm:

The paint is not as smooth as I'd like, need to rub it back a little and put another coat on but been putting off doing it as no layout to run on so trying to get that resolved.

Not much to report at the moment, less progress than I'd hoped.

Alongside work on the house that needs attention (damp, ripping plasterboard walls out, building a downstairs toilet and sorting my daughter's new bedroom out) I've got a much longer queue of projects all part of the railway that I keep dipping in and out of them and making little progress.

I've also scraped the bumper on my wife's new car so no spending for a little bit until that's paid for, it's small but more than I'm able to polish out, being metalic paint it's beyond my ability to confidently do a good job of patching it.

So, while awaiting spending approval again (and selling anything that's been in the bottom of a box for four years on ebay)
I'm hoping to actually write down my project list and work through it, hopefully bringing myself up-to date and more organised and focused.

Feel free to chime in and persuade / help me to prioritise some over others or anything you think I should photograph properly and write up for the journal.

In no particular order:

L&Y 3d printed pug - paint, add couplings, afix to chassis etc
Streamlined City of Coventry - wartime black - paint and number
Streamlined Princess Eliza - Crimson - paint, line and number
Ransome & Rapier breakdown crane (and train)
Scalescenes large station (midland)- under progress on desk at work
Faller post office (intended to be pub / station hotel)
Finish testing MERG components for DCC control
Control panel (work out what MERG components for signal and point control, purchase and build)
Trial and fit DG couplings
Smart Models terraced houses (B&B)
Smart Models pier building
Smart Models engine shed
Plan depot as this is actually missing from track plan
build raised trackbed
lay track
actually get a train moving under DCC power!
Sea wall
detail LNWR station building
detail and finish goods shed
persuade wife to finish cinema so I can build a back for it
finish Metcalfe timber framed shops
Finish Severn Brass vicarage kit
finish detailing church building

so, enough to keep me occupied without queueing up any more jobs!

I can usually have a cardboard kit going at work in my lunch breaks (currently station) but can't do anything involving solvents for obvious reasons.


10,000 is not listed above as I need to source a china era GF 37 chassis, ideally one that's DCC ready and I'm not allowed money at the moment! This will come in time.
